I must say that Stark’s lived up to its billing. The food was incredible! We had three different kinds of raw oysters, as well as crispy calamari for appetizers. (They do their calamari a little differently with an orange/chili sauce. It was an instant hit!) We had a few of their cocktails, which were all very good and unique. (When we asked for a Fuzzy Navel, the waiter had to check to see if they could make it, leading me to believe that most folks order strictly off of their Specialty/Vintage cocktail menu – or wine or beer.) Everything here is a la carte. The “sides” are served (small) family style, so you can mix-and-match in order to try a variety. We went for the broccoli and the mashed potatoes. Again, excellent. Two of us ordered filet mignon – one was USDA Prime, mine was Frontier natural grass fed. The USDA Prime was definitely more tender with less gristle. My daughter had the USDA Prime ribeye, my son ordered salmon and my mother ordered ahi tuna steak. We all sampled a little bit of everyone’s since no one had ever been to Stark’s before, and everyone enjoyed it all. Everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. To close out the evening, we all ordered a variety of desserts and I must say that mine was the best: Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Pudding. (Probably because it’s made with buttery croissants!)
Yes, it’s a little pricey, but Stark’s is perfect for a special occasion. To be honest, I cannot see going here more than once, maybe twice a year. Oh, the only negative of the entire evening was that my daughter did not get a refill on her soft drink until we were almost finished with dinner, and my mother never got a refill on her coffee (which is actually served in a three-cup French press.) Perhaps they feel that it won’t run dry or get cold? We’ll never know. The water flowed freely and often; however. This is why I could not give a five-star rating.
